A Common European Sales Law for the European Union - A proposal from the European Commission - A Call for Evidence (MoJ/BIS/NFP(NI)/Scottish Government) - TSI response - May 2012

TSI response (PDF 137KB). TSI remains convinced of the value of the principle of a CESL, but believes that this attempt is unsatisfactory in detail and that it might prejudice UK discussions on a new consumer code. This, together with the financial restrictions currently facing Europe which may prevent a satisfactory education programme, reinforces the TSI view that now is not the right time to bring the proposal forward.
